This Animal Brains activity & project also includes:

Do big bodies make big brains? Let your learners decide whether there is an association between body weight and brain weight by putting the data from different animals into a scatterplot. They can remove any outliers and then make a line of best fit to show whether the relationship is positive or negative. Fortunately for us, human brains are heavy!
